Steph's amazing month for Warriors summed up in graphic

Warriors

What a month it was for Steph Curry.

The Warriors star absolutely dominated the NBA in April, as evidenced by the eye-popping stats featured in the graphic below.

His 96 3-pointers in April brought him to a season-total of 284, 39 more than the next-closest player (Buddy Hield has made 245). 

Curry surpassed Bradley Beal as the NBA's leading scorer by putting up 37.3 points per game in April, increasing his season average to 31.3.

He also became the first NBA player to average 35-plus points per game while being part of the exclusive 50-40-90 club. Curry shot 51.8 percent from the field, 46.6 percent from 3-point range and 90.8 percent from the free throw line.

Despite Curry's brilliance, the Warriors went just 8-8 for the month, and sit 10th in the Western Conference standings going into Saturday night's game against the Houston Rockets.

He likely won't be the league MVP, but Curry's dominance in his 12th NBA season does deserve some added praise.

The Warriors will need the hot streak to continue into May if they want to maintain their place in the playoff picture.
